I don’t profess to be the most knowledgable jazzhead, especially when it comes to the magnitude of Dizzy Gillespie, but I wanted to put together an article that highlighted this jazz pioneer, as well as a few suggestions on music to check out.
I write articles on a plethora of subjects, mainly because I can’t narrow down my tastes to just a few things. I like a wide variety of things that happen in the world and enjoy sharing my thoughts and information with anyone that wants to read along.
Copywriting is a natural progression for me because of my passion and love for so many unique things.
